Daylight Saving Time Change

Digital Edge Assists in Daylight Saving Time Change
Staten Island, New York February 26, 2007

The U.S. Energy Policy Act of 2005, passed by the U.S. Congress July, 2005, extended Daylight Saving Time (DST) in the U.S. by approximately four weeks. As a result, beginning in 2007, DST will start three weeks earlier on March 11, 2007, and end one week later on November 4, 2007, resulting in a new DST period that is four weeks longer than previously observed. These four weeks are referred to as the "extended DST period".

Change in daylight saving time:
Previously DST started on: With the new law, DST will start on: Previous DST ended on: With the new law, DST will end on:
First Sunday of April Second Sunday of March Last Sunday of October First Sunday of November
Would have been: April 1, 2007 Will now be: March 11, 2007 Would have been: October 28, 2007 Will now be: November 4, 2007

Unless certain updates are applied to your network, it is possible that the time zone settings for your computer's system clock may be incorrect during this four week period. When your time zone settings are incorrect your clock may be off by one hour, and certain applications running on your Windows based computer may not display the correct time.
